NEW Stevens 555 Compact O/U in .410, 28 & 20 GA

Stevens 555 Compact

Savage Arms is releasing new Stevens 555 Compact models to supplement their current line of Over & Under (O/U) shotguns. The initial caliber offerings will be .410, 28 and 20 Gauge. With the immediate success of the Stevens 555 it only makes sense they expand their offerings to fit smaller and younger shooters.

One of the main reasons the Stevens 555 has taken off is its affordable price. If you have a younger shooter you do not need to sell your next of kin to get him/her shooting. The MSRP of the Stevens 555 standards and compacts is $692, but a lot of gun shops sell them cheaper than that.

All of the models come standard with 5 choke tubes which is great. Normally the #1 accessory shooters buy and struggle to find is choke tubes. The Turkish walnut and cut checkering also make buyers feel like they are getting a great value because it definitely has curb appeal.

The barrels are chrome-lined, it has an intuitive tang-safety, and its lightweight design swings well. Although it may have an aluminum receiver to achieve this feathery weight, the breech is re-inforced with steel to ensure strength and integrity.

The length-of-pull is set to a standard 13 1/4″ and the forearm is shortened as well to give it a consistent and fluid feel.

A short overview of the new shotgun is presented by Savage Arms here:

With many high schools and youth programs expanding throughout the US the Stevens 555 Compact should draw a lot of attention once it hits store shelves.

The outdoors, fitness and anything related to firearms are my passions. I am a S&W Armorer, Glock Armorer, reloader and am coping with an addiction to classic S&W and Colt revolvers (by buying more revolvers). I’ve been a guest writer for Sierra Bullets and love long walks to the gun range.

    Just your typical typical Turkish shotgun. Judging by the features and appearance, I wouldn’t be surprised if Savage has the same OEM that Tri Star does.

      Nicely done. The Turks are doing well

  • Spencerhut

    Turkey owns the mid to low end shotgun world at the moment. Mossberg, CZ, Weatherby, Tristar and on and on . . . all sell made in Turkey guns. This is not all bad, the quality is getting better and the prices are not going up much. Look at a CZ 712 Gen 2, very well made gun and reasonably priced.

    “Normally the #1 accessory shooters buy and struggle to find is choke tubes.”
    This statement is stupid beyond words. There are plenty of online retailers that sell all types of choke tubes.

  • That 20ga is calling me #shortpeopleprobs

    too bad not one in 16

  • Am I just old for thinking that single trigger double barrels look broken?

  • maodeedee

    I wonder about frame size. Are they all built on the same frame size or are the 28 Ga. and the 410 built on a smaller frame or is only the 410 built on a smaller frame?

    Tres belle presentation du fusil, si on installe aussi une crosse anglaise, a col de cygne, sa ligne elancee sera parfaite
